More X-Men return in ‘Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey’ #2

Dead X-Men ROLL CALL!

So what’s going on here? Are all these characters truly back? Are NONE of them coming back, and Jean’s return itself is yet another fakeout? Will the Phoenix use their memories to sustain and reestablish its favorite host? Writer Matthew Rosenberg and his army of artists are hoping you’re curious enough to come back for #3 in… Jesus, just a week?! She’s had eternity, NOW she’s suddenly in a rush.


Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey #2 is available now.
